What is it about Switzerland and their Eurovision Selection Process that attracts former X-Factor contestants? 2013 is no exception as yet another former UK X-Factor Act enters the race to represent Switzerland at Eurovision 2014.
No it is not Rylan Clark (though that would be 3 minutes worth watching). 2014 sees the Act “Diva Fever” from the X-Factor 2010, try their luck at Eurovision.
They have entered the song “Dancefloor Lover” into the Swiss Selection and you can see it here
The first 3 lines of the song set the tone for the song
“I’m a Diva…. So What
I’m in heat….So Hot
They’re like bees round a honey pot”
You see where the guys are going here. They are out there and proud – so hats off to them. This is a Eurodance Pop song that is like something from the 90’s – Think La Bouche “Be My Lover” (yet not as catchy – sorry guys) and you are on the right lines.
They would no doubt go OTT (and I don’t mean Lepland) with their stage performance if Switzerland puts them into their final selection. Remember this performance on the X-Factor?
In 2011 another former British X-Factor Finalist entered the Swiss National Selection for Baku. The brother and sister duo “Same Difference” tried to get to Eurovision with the song “Music”. Unfortunately it was a “no” from the Swiss Public.
Can Diva Fever go one step further?
Simon Cowell has a lot to answer for.
